Arenaria montana
Mountain Sandwort
zones 4-8
Description:  A cousin of the popular Dianthus genus, Sandwort is still relatively unknown to many gardeners. Their foliage is similar; this plant has narrow, glossy green leaves that form prostrate mats of foliage. It is the perfect substitute for moss in sunny areas. It will quickly fill in the spaces between stepping stones or trail down the sides of rock walls.  In mid-spring, Sandwort is blanketed by relatively large 1/2 in. wide, white flowers. It is an impressive show that has tremendous impact when grown en masse and is even more spectacular when spring-flowering bulbs are mixed in.
